Exploring The Postmodern: Perils Or Potentials?
In an attempt to rescue the self from the ravages of postmodern analysis, M. Brewster Smith (1994) called into action traditional investments in science and moral vision. However, not only are the grounds for these investments found wanting, they themselves harbor threats to human well-being. Furthermore, by understanding the postmodern conception of language as relational, a certain place can be made for both empirical research and moral deliberation. At the same time, postmodern thought opens new vistas for psychology and new horizons for the self.
